Under New Ownership, Thunder Head Back To Detroit

February 26, 2013 - Continental Indoor Football League (CIFL) - Detroit Thunder News Release

DETROIT, MI - The Detroit Thunder are coming home. With the acquisition of the Thunder franchise by Terrence and Lawrence Foster their first move was to bring the indoor football franchise back to the Detroit-area.

"The Detroit Thunder will play their remaining home games at the Taylor Sportsplex this season," said Co-Owner Terrence Foster, "The Taylor Sportsplex is only minutes from the Detroit Metro Airport and will be an ideal location for us to play in for the duration of the season."

The Thunder have no easy task ahead of themselves this week in their "official" home opener after being handed a loss at the hands of the Erie Explosion last week in part of a double-header that took place at The McMorran Place in Port Huron, MI.

"Detroit is nearly an hour from Port Huron," said Foster, "Playing in Port Huron did not allow our Detroit fan-base to grow; especially without them being able to enjoy the product on the field without incurring travel costs."

The Thunder will welcome the defending CIFL Champion Saginaw Sting to the Taylor Sportsplex on Sunday 3/3 with a 4PM kickoff. Tickets for the game are only $10 and can be purchased at the door on gameday.
